in that regard? >> jon: candy crowley she accepted out of her moderator on role and on the spotted fact checker position. it earned her a good amount of criticism. an internal memo reads, let's start with a big round of applause for candy crowley for a suburb job. her reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, romney supporters are going after her on two points because their man didn't have as good night as he denver. on the fact checking on the rose garden statement it should be stressed she was state ago point of fact. he did talk about an act or act of terror no matter what you think he meant by that at the time. judy, was this interaction on her part or intervention. >> it was clearly intervention. it served the president's interests. whether or not that was her intent. candy is not a national foreign policy security person. there is no reason she would have been familiar with every word the president said at the rose garden. she had read the transcript night before. it almost looked like an ambush. a lesson to governor romney never launch an attack in the form of a question. it leaves your

will assure you that now. was a town hall style debate. >> good evening. i am candy crowley. we are here for the second presidential debate at the town hall, sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. there are 82 uncommitted voters from the new york area. michael is to give the conversation direction and make sure the questions are answered. the questions are known to me and my team only. neither the commission nor the candidates have seen them. i am optimistic, so i am sure the candidates will oblige by keeping their answers concise. there will be a two-minute follow-up. the audience here has agreed to be polite and attentive. no cheering or outburst of any sort. we will set aside that agreement just this once to welcome president obama and mitt romney. [applause] >> thank you both for joining us tonight. we have a lot of folks who want to talk to you. governor romney won the coin toss. the first question will go to you. a first-time voter, jeremy, has a question. >> as a 20-year-old college student, when i graduate, i will have little chance to get employment. what can you s
the candidates. these days they increasingly seem to be about the moderators. jim lehrer, and candy crowley. >> we're sort of way off topic here, governor romney. we're completely offer >> we were talking about immigration. >> quickly, mr. president, if i could have you sit down. governor romney, thank you. >> is the criticism of her role in this debate fair or partisan? we'll examine that face-off between barack obama and mitt romney. our journal is still far more fixated on the theatrics of the bee baits and on funny little moments like this one. >> it's phrase that won't die. >> binders full of women. >> binders full of women. >> biernds full of women is something you find in a killer's basement at the end of a "law & order: svu." >>> plus "newsweek" is ending its run. tina brown on moving into the digital world. i'm howard kurtz, and this is "rely" "reliable sources." >>> moderate as presidential debate as we have seen this fall means putting yourself in the cross fire and that's where she found herself during the second face-off this past week. >> governor romney, there will be plenty
the secret service to anpann into thei grou andhaveandy crowley administer the can count. the would've in the best television ever. unfortunately, it ended with a whimper rather than a bang. >> did we learn anything about these candidates and their positions and policies that we did not know before? >> i think voters sense they are not hearing the truth, because they are not. neither candidate tells the truth in these debates. we make it complicated, dancing around the truth. when romney comes out and says, "i will make sure you get aob, jobs.he cannot guarantee this idea that we are suddenly going to create jobs is not true and people know it. >> he says he will create 12 million jobs, and moody's says that whoever is president, it will be 12 million jobs, the way the economy's going. how would you characterize the demeanor of the two candidates, starting with mitt romney? >> this problem the president has is that he has been two different people. and to some degree, romney, to not the degree of the present. he was passive and listless in the first debate. this time he mentioned al
crowley and her staff and producers, they went through the 160 questions, so figure out what are the ten or 12 that would make for a really good townhall debate. cnn producers have been involved in doing standard background can checks, to see if any of these people have given money to a campaign, where have they registered to vote, is there anything in their background that could embarrass the commission or candy crowley. at this point, cnn knows which of the nine or ten questions they are going to try to get in and the people arrived here as if they are in their sunday best. a couple of things about the format, once the individuals ask their question governor romney president obama will each have the standard two minutes to respond and then there will be a five-minute window in which they can interact with each other. there has been some debate and controversy here about the role that candy crowley would play. would she ask some of her own follow-up questions? but she will facilitate a five-minute conversation, and then they will go to another audience member. as fa
crowley. trying to qualify for correction of mitt romney.k the president s before he called the attack in benghazi. >> he did, in fact, sir. megyn: candy crowley went on tv after the debate and offered an explanation of what happened there. >> he was right in the main point. i just think that he picked the wrong word. >> there has been a lot of pushback on her. while the president did use the word act of terror, there is the question of contacts and whether he or anyone else was on the record as describing it as a terrorist attack in the wake of public statements. that was about a spontaneous protest and whether the matter should have been weighed in by a moderator on such an dicey issue. coming up, we will speak to political experts on whether candy crowley change the debate with the key issue and wasn't appropriate for her to do what she did. this is a fiery panel. you need to watch this one today. plus, new questions are being raised after the president suggested that he called the attack in libya a terrorist attack on day one. why did ambassador is a nice call it a protest on almon

outburst in and tackle romney, pin him, and have candy crowley that administer the 10-count. that would have been the best debate ever. are fortunate, it ended with a whimper rather than a bang -- unfortunately, it ended with a whimper rather than a bang. >> did we learn anything about these candidates and their positions and policies that we did not know before? >> i think that voters says they're not telling the truth, because they are not. neither candidate is telling the truth in these debates. when romney comes out and says "i will make sure you get a job," he cannot guarantee jobs. his plan is a phony plan to get jobs. this idea that they will suddenly create jobs is not true, and people know it. >> he says he will create 12 million jobs, but i read somewhere, moody's said that whoever is president, there will be 12 million jobs because of the way the economy's going. how would you characterize the demeanor of the two candidates, starting with mitt romney? >> the problem the president has is that he has been at two different people in the first two debates. to some degree, mitt ro
candy crowley had time for just 11 questions from the audience, and in interrupted president oba 9 times and governor romney, 28 times, two of the most important moments in that debate, may become part of history. the flat out assersion by the president that the very next morning, he called a september 11 attack, on our consulate in benghazi a terrorist attack. >> the day after the attack, governor, i stood in the ose garden. i told the american people and the world, that we're going to find out what happened. that this was an act of terror. >> the president did not. the president preceded his language on acts of terror with reference to september 11 11 year anniversary, and spoke eloquently to the graves of our fallen troops and hospital beds of fallen warriors. here is what the president actually said in the rose garden, on september 12. >> no acts of terror will every shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or clips the light of the values that we stand for. lou: president's statement leading to the most extraordinary moment in presidential debate history,
he told candy crowley on the state of the union, what we can expect from president obama tuesday night. >> he knew when he walked off stage and he also knew when he watched the tape of that debate, that he's got to be more energetic, i think you'll see somebody that's more passionate about the problems that face the american people. >> candy crowley also had ed gillesp gillesp gillespie, mitt romney's adviser. >> the president can change his style, he can change his rhetoric, but he can't change his policies so that's what this election is about. >> this is going to be hugely important especially coming on the heels of the vice presidential debate. a lot of people thought joe biden did a good enough job of setting the table for president obama tuesday night. >> mark this is a town hall style, it's the hottest ticket in town, there in hempstead new york. who's going to be in the audience? how do they get those tickets? >> if you're hoping to come here to the university to come to the debate on tuesday, i suggest you leave it on cnn because you won't be able to get in. the tickets
. and presumably no weight on the moderator herself, candy crowley. we've reached out to cnn for their take. this is all happening today as we speak. >> andrea, i try to keep my analysis within kind of, you know, within bounds and not get too worked up one way or the other, but this is ridiculous. candy crowley, we all know, is very respected, was chosen for her kind of deep experience and knowledge covering politics. the idea that she would not be able to ask follow-up questions, the audience will obviously ask the questions, that she would not be able to follow up, maybe hold president obama or mitt romney to more -- a more specific answer, a more detailed answer, actually answering the question rather than getting off on talking points. it's absolutely ridiculous. this is moderators matter. if you needed any evidence of that, go back and watch the vice presidential debate and the way in which martha raddatz didn't make herself the third debater, but added herself in at moments where her knowledge and her expertise were of value to push the candidates to say, you know what? that talking p
covered him on capitol hill, cnn reporter candy crowley. i asked candy why he was known as snarlin arlen. >> he could be cranky. he was a very smart guy, very smart guy. a lawyer, he had been a prosecuting attorney. he has been -- the history that he covered in his career, not just the senate, and i think he was there for like 30 years, but he was on the warren commission, he was one of the attorneys for the warren commission which looked into the jfk assassination. is to just the time spent with all the supreme court nominees because he loved the law. he was on the judiciary committee. he played such a pivotal role in selecting some of the supreme court justices that now sit on that bench and approving them. so he had such a span of history. he was also really got battered by politics. he started out a regular democrat but ran as a republican, got elected to the senate as a republican, and at the end of his career, when he was getting ready to run for reelection in the 2010 race, or close to it. i'm going to have to go back and actually check that. in 2010, he switched parties and becam
of terrorism. >> could you say that louder. >> bill: major mistake made by debate moderator candy crowley. we will document it and have analysis from bob beckel, me your hummable correspondent. >> bill: who would you rather baby-sit your child? romney or obama. romney loses in the baby-sitting. >> obama done such a good job of instituting a nanny state but they figure it might just track right over to baby-sitting. >> bill: dennis miller committing to the romney cause in a big way. miller will be here. >> bill: president obama helped himself in the debate. romney didn't hurt himself there wasn't clearly a winner loser situation. >> bill: i discuss the debate with katie couric on her new syndicated program. >> with all due respect to the president he hasn't explained what happened to the american people. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. presidential debate number two. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as you know, i am a simple man so i'm going to
us from the debate site at hofstra university. candy crowley is moderating debate. dan, let's start with you if we can. does the campaign think this is taking the pressure off the white house? will the timing of the clinton statement add to the controversy? do voters care about this issue? >> reporter: well it just might add to the controversy, because, yes, i mean, critics will look at the timing of all of this over the last several days, the white house has been making the case that there is sort of this separation between what the white house knows about on these issues and what the state department is in charge of. jay carney making it clear, at the end of last week, the decisions on security issues, security matters, consulates and embassies around the world that falls under the portfolio of the state department and it's something that the white house would not know about in terms of every move. and so this sort of backs that up. for the critics going after the obama administration saying that they've dropped the ball on libya, i don't think that's going to take care of this. a
should have known that candy crowley is no jim lehrer and he should have are been ready for that and he should have had a much softer approach through this debate. you can be soft, polite, and still get your points across but i'm not sure that he's capable of that. i think he's the atypical boss who wants to control the room wherever he goes and it doesn't work that way in politics. >> ana marie, i'm running out of time but i want to go back to the moment that everyone is talking about and that's when governor romney insists that the president never said act of terror. first, let me show you the moderator, candy crowley correcting him. take a listen. >> i think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack he went in the rose garden and said that this was an act of terror. >> that's what i said. >> you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration. >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he c
again. >> the problem is, candy crowley sort of waded in to help the president. >> they should just eliminate moderators overall. >> thanks for watching tonight, focus. if you saw president obama today, you noticed a little spring in his step. the president was back on the campaign trail in the state of ohio today, fresh off his successful debate performance. it's pretty obvious, the president thinks last night went pretty well for him. especially his tobacattacks on romney. >> so let's recap what we learned last night. his tax plan doesn't add up. his jobs plan doesn't create jobs. his deficit reduction plan adds to the deficit. we've been there. we've tried that. we're not going back. we're moving forward. that's why i need your vote. we've got to finish what we started in 2008. >> the president feels good and so does his base. he turned around a lot of dejected supporters with his energetic performance last night, no doubt. mitt romney was trying to keep spirits high at a campaign rally in virginia, but his stump speech, well, it was a little bit different. for instance, there wa
, thank you very much for your analysis. whoa appreciate it. >>> moderator, candy crowley, of cnn made some waves herself. she had to. she played referee to two men who were determined to take control. but the most talked about exchange came during an argument over libya. as you heard, crowley said obama was right then she said romney had a point. conservatives pounced saying crowley got it wrong. this is what candy said on "starting point." >> listen, what i said on that stage is the same thing i said to you, actually, last night. >> i was sitting there. i know what you said. >> which is that -- what i was trying to do, by the way -- not fact check them, but i was trying to move this along. the question was benghazi. there is no question that the administration is quite vulnerable on this topic, that they did take weeks to go, well, there wasn't actually a protest and it didn't have anything to do with the tape. that was his first answer, romney's -- then we got stuck on this yes, i did. no, you didn't. yes, i did say terror. then there was this point where he they both looked at me.
about that. >> bill: ms. crowley with all due respect because i like her totally blew it. 100% blew it. all right. candy crowley helped the president, all right? she actually helped him when she should have stayed neutral. the president did not, did not specifically call the murder of the american ambassador in libya a terrorist attack. in the rose garden, he was speaking generically about the nation not giving into terrorism no matter what form it takes. ms. crowley did not make that clear. now, that controversy came up when i talked with katie couric today. >> ms. crowley with all due respect blue -- blew it it what the president said in the rose garden is that americans will never give into terrorism. it was a general statement. did he not label the benghazi attack terrorism. >> i think it's sort of subject to interpretation in terms of what he said. >> that's fair, you can interpret it that way. however, here's where that argument falls down. is that the president sent his ache lights out to say it was generated by that crazy tape. and you had ambassador rice say it you had his pre
was of course this candy crowley moment. i know everybody has been all over it. i will say, this romney was winning the debate. he was winning it and going in for the kill at that point and thee interjected, threw him off his game and my question is: all of a sudden obama comes up with this september 12th rose garden -- exactly right out of nowhere and surprised everyone except candy crowley. i'm calling for a warren commission type of investigation. >> bill: ms. crowley said to gutfeld she said she knew it was going to come up, so she researched the first thing when was the first time and she had the research in front of her. you know what? i believe her. however, she is wrong. he didn't apply the terror act to benghazi. he was speaking in general terms. and we have proved that yard. most interesting moment to you? >> i have to go back to the overall demeanor of ms. crowley. she reminds me of the lady at the gate at the airport when you try to jump zones like when they are loading zone one but you are in zone 2 and she does that thing where she is like no, no, no. that's. >> bill: you
